My idea of home is a place where you can relax, have fun and drink tea. A home is about protection and allows you to stay safe and feel loved.

Home is where you can have clean water, use a washroom and have a shower comfortably.
Home is where hunger is not a problem as you have clean food and fruit.
Home is where you have the right to learn, read and write, talk and start to walk.
Home is where you have warmth, where you’ll never be cold and can sometimes be consoled.
But most importantly, home is where your heart is and forever will be.

The fact that not everybody has a home is unbelievably sad. Remember, a home is not just a building. Rather it is where all of these memories can happen.

A home is not just wood, bricks and wires. It’s what you are and where you come from. Home is where you are shaped to be who you are. Your home loves you and you love it.
